958 Tasting Notes
Ok, after another mug of this one (now I’m confident that it’s an oolong) I’m changing my tune a bit—it’s nice but it’s quite weak; I definitely don’t like it as much as the Tung Ting. Which is good, actually! Look at me hbi g opinions about green teas beyond “it’s a green tea”!
The question is, do I bother finishing the small packet of this or do I justvin it? Can I bring myself to bin a tea? Is it the age of the tea that’s affecting the flavour (though this COULD be a yes I think it would be a loose one as this is a mild oolong by description in any case).
Oh cool, since I added these Austrian teas to Steepster, the tea shop has gone online! Decent photos! Good times!
Now that I’ve finished the oolong, time to hit the jasmine. Again, I’m not a green tea drinker but gosh I’ve been enjoying a mug at bedtime lately. There’s something kinda cleansing about it, especially when I’m full of food! Burger Mondays are intense.
And I did it! I finished an Austrian tea, finally!
Funny, I have never really considered myself a green tea drinker. I just don’t really reach for them or feel like them, but in an effort to sip through my ever-dwindling cupboard I pulled my socks up and got to it.
And really enjoyed it.
So now I’m gonna go drink through another one. (There are four.)
Ok, I’m making a concerted effort to not forget about these teas this Christmas, particularly as I don’t have much else to do. Christmas Afternoon for dessert with milk and sugar (and some shortbread, because Christmas!). Definitely getting vanilla, a bit of cinnamon? Seems like a nice mellow black with a kiss of flavour.
